My website randomly crashes Firefox

Last week my site was fine but as of yesterday my site has been randomly crashing Firefox. It doesn't crash in IE or Chrome, only in FF. It's not just crashing for me, others have told me it does the same for them.

It seems to happen randomly only on individual post pages, not on the home page and I don't think it happens on archive pages. My developer thinks it may be a display ad, but it seems that when it crashes it's immediately upon clicking a link and that doesn't give an ad time to start loading.

Here's an example Crash report from the pop up after the browser crashes:

See Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems See Troubleshoot issues with plugins like Flash or Java to fix common Firefox problems --- The "View > Page Source" of that link shows a lot of type stuff. It is possible that one of those is causing the crashes.

Is there a way to set the latest version of Firefox so that it DOESN'T clear the cache when it crashes? If I could check the cache after a crash I'd be able to see the last thing that loaded in the prior session and that might help me a LOT with figuring out what is causing the crash.

I've searched here and Googled it but can't find a way to set that up.

Thanks,

Vic
